JERAGM received the award for its high-performance, strong innovation & flexibility and the development of numerous partnerships in the world of LNG across the last 12 months.

The S&P Global Platts Global Energy Awards are attributed by a panel of judges selected by S&P Global Platts – a provider of information on the global energy market for over 100 years – to energy companies to recognize their achievements in their respective fields.

Energy companies from 10 countries spanning four continents received honors for leadership, innovation and exemplary performance. Actor-comedian-director Jason Alexander of cinema and television fame hosted the virtual event, which bestowed 22 awards upon companies and individuals.

Kazunori Kasai, CEO of JERAGM said, “To support the growth of LNG, we have been working to increase liquidity in the Asian LNG market from the buyer's side. It is a great honor to be recognized for this initiative.”

JERAGM launched its LNG trading business in April 2019 and has achieved steady results through optimization transactions based on the large-scale flow and assets involved in supplying fuel to JERA and EDF.
